The Pros And Cons Of Using Organic Eye Pencils
If you’re paying attention to makeup trends, you’ll notice that organic options are popular. If you don’t want to commit to a fully organic makeup selection, you can start by swapping out your traditional eye pencils for organic ones to see what you think.
1. Organic Options Are Safe To Wear After Procedures:
You may plan to get a procedure such as microdermabrasion, a facial, or plastic surgery. It’s often discouraged or forbidden to wear traditional makeup for a certain time after the procedure. Numerous professionals across specialities seem to agree that they are not opposed to the wearing of organic makeup. Eye pencils should be pretty easy to wear even during healing.
2. Organic Options Are Accessible:
If you’re wanting to incorporate organic eye pencils into your makeup routine, you shouldn’t have trouble finding them. Due to demand, both high-end and everyday-priced organic makeup is available. Whatever your particular budget, it won’t prohibit you from trying organic makeup.
3. Organic Options Don’t Contain Endocrine-Disrupting Chemicals:
Traditional makeup formulas contain harsh chemicals. One type of chemical is called endocrine disruptors. The endocrine system produces and distributes our body’s hormones.
Endocrine disruptors effect hormone production by mimicking hormones or hindering natural rates of hormone production. This isn’t seen in organic options. Eye pencils are near mucus membranes, which are especially prone to absorbing things. That’s why organic pencils are a safer choice.
4. Organic Options Are More Environmentally Conscious:
Traditional makeup can contain and produce more pollutants than organic options. Often, man-made chemicals can leave a large footprint. When you choose organic eye pencils, you are getting benefits in two ways:
1. The naturally-occurring ingredients provide more vitamins, antioxidants, and minerals
2. The production process and packaging is often far more sustainable than traditional options.
1. Organic Options Aren’t Waterproof:
Due to the lack of man-made chemicals, organic eye pencils as well as other organic makeup won’t be waterproof. The eye pencils may run with sweat, swimming, or a heavy, misty fog. Just a simple touch-up is all it takes to remedy the problem.
2. Organic Options Lack Preservatives:
Traditional formulas use harsh chemicals for antibacterial properties and to avoid contamination. It’s generally accepted that due to their decreased harshness, organic preservative options are not as effective as man-made. Since the eyes are an area with mucus membranes, you’ll want to keep safe with either traditional or organic. Safety options include not sharing eye pencils, keeping sanitary, and replacing pencils if needed.
3. Organic Options Don’t Have As Many Colors:
Due to the fact they eschew synthetic dyes or colourants, it may seem that the colour selection of organic eye pencils is incomplete. The trade-off for fewer colours is non-toxic and natural ingredients you can trust.
4. Organic Options May Still Cause Reactions:
Though natural, an organic eye pencil may still cause those with allergies or very sensitive skin to have a reaction. It’s best to know about any preexisting allergies before trying any makeup, whether organic or traditional.
In my opinion, natural will always win over an eye pencil full of chemicals. You can read more of my green beauty posts here.
